DESTINATION

It was such an honor to be a part of this incredible couple’s wedding day in beautiful Birmingham, Alabama–the city where they met and fell in love. It’s been wonderful getting to know Gina & Spencer during such a special chapter in their lives. The couple’s families and friends traveled from near and far to witness them take their vows and celebrate together. We began Gina & Spencer’s day at the historic Redmont Hotel. The Redmont made such a gorgeous backdrop as the wedding party spent the morning here getting ready. One of my favorite moments from the morning was the first look between Gina & her parents with her sisters looking on. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. The Roof at the Redmont was the perfect space for Spencer and his groomsmen to relax before heading over to The Cathedral of St Paul for the ceremony.

Gina &Spencer’s reception took place at the beautiful in downtown Birmingham. Hearing their families give such heartfelt and beautiful speeches during the toasts brought tears to my eyes. These two met in med school at UAB, and Spencer’s brother toasted “you’ve been our role model, our confidant, our doctor, our best friend, and I’m so happy that you’ve found your role model, your confidant, your doctor, and your best friend.” When Gina’s sister spoke, she mentioned that throughout their lives Gina was their North Star, always leading them back home. In just the small amount of time I’ve known them, I can tell that these are just the kind of people they are, always caring for others. I know that she and Spencer will be that for each other throughout everything life sends their way, each other’s North stars. Looking for a Birmingham Wedding Photographer? I’d love to chat with you.

A beautiful summer afternoon spending time with your friends and getting dolled up for your bridal portraits—what could be better?! We had an amazing time taking Haley’s bridal portraits at Alley Station Rooftop + Ballroom in downtown Montgomery. This wedding venue has tons to offer brides, so we opted to take advantage of both the indoor and outdoor areas of the facility.

I encourage all of my brides to book a bridal session for three main reasons:

  • One – You get to have a trial run of your hair and makeup, and then see how you will look in photos in case you want to change anything up on your wedding day.
  • Two – This gives you stunning photos of yourself to print a canvas to display at your reception, and you can even gift your parents (who have worked so hard to make your dream wedding come true!) a print or a canvas to display in their home.
  • Three – The wedding day will fly by, and it’s so much fun to spend a couple of hours getting to feel beautiful in your gown and bring your friends along too!

The Alley Station Ballroom made for the most elegant and dramatic bridal portraits, and we loved the exposed rustic brick wall and modern accents of the Rooftop too. You can find more of this stunning session in the recent issue of Gulf Coast Weddings Magazine.
